Unboxing: Memebox Global Edition #16

Finally! After so many memeboxes, I have finally gotten my hands on a numbered global box. I’ve read about how the numbered global boxes are the best memeboxes, how they never disappoint, and how great value they are, but never got the chance to get one until now. They’re always sold out quickly! So if you are interested in getting one, don’t hesitate too long when they’re out for sale!

The shipping date for this was fixed on 24 October and I received this on 30 October. This box is priced at USD23, plus another USD6.99 for standard shipping.

What is Memebox?
Memebox is a non-subscription mystery beauty box company. Each regular Memebox comes with 4 to 8 full-sized or deluxe sample of Korean products, while Superbox comes with only full sized products. Shipping dates are set by the company; check the product description for information about when the box is scheduled to start shipping.

Memebox Global Edition #16
Always anticipated, and always bringing excitement, Memebox Global is back for the time! Packed with all your beauty essentials, this box is packed with goodies that will keep you waiting on your toes! This edition is worth over $100 in retail value, but it can be yours for only $23! Packed with only the most high-quality beauty products, Memebox Global Edition #16 will be the best box you’ve seen yet!

Item 1: Elizavecca Shrink Lifting R Pro
Full size 120ml, Value of $28
Product Description: Oil based and non sticky, this is a cream for your swollen calevs. It works to literally shrink the size of calves by relieving stimulated skin and increasing skin elasticity and firmness. Its gentle yet effective formula consists of mandarin extracts, coffee extracts, sage oil, peppermint, winter green and mate leaf extracts.
Quick thoughts: I have huge calves so I will use it; although I doubt that there’s truly any use. I think there only proper diet and exercise can shrink anything but there’s no harm trying!

Item 2: Hair+ Velvet Nutri-Injection
Full size 12ml, Value of $5
Product Description: For all those damaged hairs out there, this is here to save the day! There’s absolutely no need to rinse after application. Simply apply it throughout your hair, especially the damaged ends, and experience results of a hair clinic program!
Quick thoughts: My hair has been feeling really dry these days so this came at a good time – will definitely try it and hope it works!

Item 3: RiRe Style Black Head Brush Cleanser & Skinny Black Head Closing Serum
Full size 40ml+20ml, Value of $18
Product Description: Packed with black food complex – black rice, black beans, black sesame – rich in protein and iron, the cleanser effectively removes any oil, dirt, blackheads, whiteheads, dead skin cells, and skin impurities clogging up the pores and delivers improved firmness and skin elasticity by tightening up blackhead-less pores. The serum provides the perfect 2nd step oil control and pore care for maintaining a well-balanced skin condition.
How to use: Wash face with warm water first. Pump out the formula and gently massage over and around your nose with the brush tip. Rinse off with cold water and apply the 2nd step serum.
Quick thoughts: A cleanser with a brush and a serum! I’m excited to try out the cleanser – the brush head would be interesting to try! I might trade away the serum though as it seems to be targeted towards oil control, and I don’t need it.

Item 4: Unni Recipe Vitamin Recharger Mist
Full size 130ml, Value of $15
Product Description: Quench skin’s thirst and brighten up dull complexion with this mist, enriched with 6 different vitamins and hyaluronic acid. Plus, it’s completely free of paraben, benzophenon, mineral oil, alcohol, tri-ethanol and artificial coloring, making it gentle enough for all skin types.
Quick thoughts: Face mist! I love getting them so very glad that I have one in this box! One negative though – the nozzle sucks! It doesnt spray in a fine mist but instead comes out like a shot; unfortunately I had aimed this near my eye and nearly got blinded by face mist.

Item 5: Delskin Centella 90 Powder Ampoule
Full size 30ml, Value of $14
Product Description: Over 90% of this ampoule consists of Centella Asiatica extracts, world renowned for its intensive soothing and repairing agents. Highly gentle and effective on sensitive skin suffering from stimulated, reddened spots or blemishes. Rejuvenate dry, tired skin.
Quick thoughts:I love getting ampoules! I’ve never heard of this extract before so it’s exciting for me.

Item 6: Mizon Snail Recovery Gel Cream
Full size 45ml, Value of $24
Product Description: A light fast-absorbing gel cream consisting of 74% snail mucus extracts which work to soothe and destress while moisturizing, nourishing and firming the skin for a gentle, non-irritating blemish and wrinkle care.
Quick thoughts: After so many subscription boxes, I am overloaded on face cream so this might be going into the swap/trade list. It sounds nice, if only I have a few more faces to try all the face creams!

While writing this post and reading the product card that comes with subscription boxes, I suddenly had a thought. Does anyone of you wonder… what’s it like to have a job writing the product card? I mean, for Memeboxes, they put “how to use” on the product cards for every single item. I think I would be rolling my eyes so much for items that are just so ridiculous to write a “how to use”; like face mists. Who doesn’t know how to use one? Or, a body lotion! Hand cream!

Anyway back to the box. The totally value for the box is $104, while I paid $23 and $6.99 for normal shipping. For this box, I felt that the prices of the products were actually quite reasonable and realistic – they’re not as ridiculously inflated like before in other boxes. I will use almost every product and I’m happy about the mist, the ampoule and the brush cleanser. I think this box is pretty good! It’s not wow shockingly good, but it’s good value – in terms of price, what will be used, and variety of products.
